The GoodTime Bar, in downtown Lafayette, Indiana—"where every night is Halloween." Stiff Kitten, a heavy metal hair-band cranks out Ratt and Motley Crue covers to sweaty bikers and local metal-heads, cramped together into this seedy shack. Wiry biker chick in a fight with her boyfriend lifts him up by his t-shirt and rams the back of his head against the battered wall, making the tables in the back shake, and the skinny, middle-aged drying out ex-drunk bartender looks nervous, too scared to pick up the baseball bat behind the bar. And then the heavy metal hair-band breaks into AC/DC, just to help break up the brawl, just to make everyone happy.
